Fundraising Gift Certificates
Glazed Doughnuts supports local organizations by allowing them to purchase Specialty Dozen Gift Certificates in bulk at a discount. Organizations resell those certificates at face value and keep the difference. The best way to handle this type of fundraising is to take orders in advance and have people prepay for the certificates at an event such as a PTA meeting, school registration or booster club activity. The coordinator would then be responsible for making the certificate purchase and delivering the certificates. (Alternatively, you could buy the certificates in advance and simply sell them at an event, but that option requires committing funds up front).
Your organization sells pre-orders to collect $1700 for gift certificates. You place your order with Glazed a week in advance, then come in and purchase your certificates for just $1360. Your organization distributes the certificates and pockets the difference of $340.
